Nightmarish, an insanely effective portrayal of a bad trip. There is a solid 45 mins in the middle of film that is stunning but the ending doesnt quite have the same impact.
So empathetic, sincere and honest. Eighth Grade is unique and authentic cinema. It perfectly encapsulates the dread of adolescent social embarassment by taking its protagonist's struggles completely seriously.
Elsie Fisher's performance is incredible. Bo Burnham is a true renaissance man.
